As of December 30, 2020, the April date has been cancelled. However, we expect to announce a later date for the 2021 festival by the end of January. Please check back for further information as it becomes available. This date change will apply to the 2021 festival only.
NORTH CAROLINA SALES TAX ID NUMBER
Vendors from the expanded Appalachian area are encouraged to apply and participate in our festival. The State of North Carolina requires that all festival vendors obtain an North Carolina Sales Tax Number and display it in their booth on the day of the festival. You can obtain a free North Carolina Sales Tax Number online by visiting the North Carolina Department of Revenue Website. If you already have a North Carolina Sales Tax Identification Number, there is no need to re-apply.
ARTS AND CRAFTS VENDORS
All Arts and Crafts vendors must be engaged in selling their arts and crafts that are handmade and/or locally produced. No retailers or independent consultants selling non-handmade products will be accepted to the festival.
Vendors selling food items which require inspection by the Health Department should complete the Food Vendor Application. Others selling specialized food products such as popcorn, shaved ice, ice cream, or similar items which do not require inspection by the Health Department should complete the Artisan and Crafters Vendor Application.
The GUTM Festival has implemented a new process for Non-Profit Organizations. Nonprofit Organizations will be notified regarding the status of their application by April 5, 2020.
Fees: $90 for all non-profit organizations that are accepted. Due by April 15, 2020.
